To do it I was to some supermarkets and registred as many prices as possible, same with cost of transportation, basic services and so on. All those prices has remained pretty much the same up today. But with the mining boom, the cost of housing sky rocketed, so as rent as real estate, an ugly home here in Arica cost more than a nice apartment in almost any city in the US, the price of my home grew from some US$ 30k to over 80K and rents rose accordingly. I think that housing -at least in Arica- has made our city a place quite expensive to move
Hello Tomas-san,long time no writing to you.The last time I visited Chile, missed to roam up your neck of the woods. Was thinking to visit you in my soon again trip to Chile but if "la vida es cara" up there in Aricas, I perhaps forced to skip going up there!
